California Prevailing Wage Law to be Heard by Committee

Tuesday, June 25, 2002 - 7:00AM

A bill to amend prevailing wage law as it applies to the construction of affordable housing in California is slated for a hearing before the Assembly Appropriations Committee tomorrow. Senate Bill 972 was introduced February 23 to amend changes made by Senate Bill 975, which passed last year requiring that projects financed through industrial development bonds by the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank comply with existing prevailing wage laws. SB 972 would exclude from the requirements of public works and prevailing wage laws the construction, expansion or rehabilitation of privately-owned residential projects that are self-help housing projects, operated on a not-for-profit basis as housing for homeless persons or that provide for housing assistance.
